Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

We compare the postoperative early and late complications of patients who had undergone ileal conduit (IC) urinary diversion and transureteroureterostomy (TUU) with ureterocutaneostomy (UC) urinary diversion during the same interval and by the same surgeons.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

Between 1992 and 2004, we performed TUU with UC urinary diversion in 27 men and 7 women (group I) and ileal conduit urinary diversion in 57 men and 10 women (group II). The mean age of the TUU with UC diversion and the ileal conduit patients was 57+/-11.2 (range 51-76) and 64+/-12.6 (range 54-76) years, and the mean follow-up was 37 (range 14-52) and 56 (range 14-72) months, respectively. The 6F or 8F stents were used routinely.

RESULTS:

Of 34 TUU with UC cases 8 (23.52%) had early postoperative complications and 2 (5.88%) had early reoperation rates, whereas 11 (16.42%) of 67 ileal conduit cases had early postoperative complications and 4 (5.97%) had early reoperation. The mean hospital stay was 7 (range 5-25 day) and 11 (range 7-34 day) days for each group, respectively. Of the TUU and UC cases, 6 (17.64%) had late complications and 3 had (8.82%) late reoperation, whereas 14 conduit cases (20.89%) had late complications and 6 had (8.9%) late reoperation. Early postoperative complications were defined as those that occurred before hospital discharge or within 30 days from the date of surgery and late complications were defined as those occurring greater than 30 days from the date of surgery as previously described. In group I, the mean operative time was 170 min (range 120-325) compared with 260 min (range 170-473) in group II. The mean blood loss in group I was 474 ml (range 250-1,400) and 589 ml (range 300-1,700) in group II (p>0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

Our results suggest that patients undergoing a TUU and UC diversion have no additional risk of reoperation and the TUU with UC urinary diversion is a safe procedure with postoperative early and late complications.
